MP3DB2 is a collection of bash scripts for keeping track of large MP3 collections. It will retrieve song information from the filenames and ID3 tags of a directory or CD of MP3s and store them in a local database. It then allows you to search any of the fields, generate a master listing of all your complete albums, see the size of your entire collection, and more.

Release Notes: This release adds a handful of bugfixes which were required because of special characters in directories and filenames. The renlower script is now much better about removing these characters.
Release Notes: The 0.8x versions of mp3info found by default on most Linux distributions are finally supported. Several changes were made to the database format. If you do not regenerate your database files, you will notice problems with the reported size of MP3s. The old database format stored the value in bytes. The newer versions of mp3info only report the size in KB. Other than that, you should be able to use a 2.x database or index file with version 3.0.
Release Notes: This release adds --genre, --comment, and --noloc options to makeplete. It fixes bugs triggered by special characters in ID3 tags of MP3 files.
Release Notes: There is a new installation/configuration script that will generate a configuration file, then allow the user to change settings through an interactive menu. A database to HTML converter has been added to the package. The configuration file is now stored as .mp3db2rc in the user's home directory. The default database and index directories have been changed.
Release Notes: This version includes some important bugfixes and major code cleanups throughout the project tree. The most important bug that was fixed in this new version concerned the swapping of artist and title fields in the SPEC file. This also caused the meaning of the -a and -t commandline options of the search utility to be reversed.
